I walked all day amidst a shower to arrive in Bath. It rained for about 5 hours of the 6 hour, 17-mile walk.
At times it was cold and the whole time it was wet. I had lunch at a gas station, and actually, it wasn’t bad. About half way in, I caught up to the Belgian duo and walked the rest of the day with them. All in all, a good way to finish up my walkabout.
The weather broke for a short stint as we came down over the hill into Bath, it was like the weather gods were granting us one little mercy for our efforts. A couple of blocks before the actual end of the path, we stopped at an old traditional pub, The Star Inn. We had a couple of A+ pints and I got to see something I’d never seen before, 2 kilderkins (18-gallon casks), both filled with Bass. They dispense by the pint or pitcher.
102 plus miles and my Cotswolds constitutional is at a close. I’ll write up a full conclusion tomorrow. Right now, I’m at a little bit of a loss for words. I’ve had such a great time and met some awesome people. Now on to some more pubs.
